    our base is on fire we get the media coverage and we win. It all about the base as, well, the base of any winning campaign.

    Getting Democrats together and keeping them that way is like herding cats that are high on meth, through L.A., during an earthquake, in the rain -6.25, -6.10

      the media message turns against us. Once we actually get our noses to the grindstone and actually start trying to churn out legislation, the Right turns on the hoses and labels what we're doing as 'too extreme.' And we have no message to fire back with.

        We have to brag and bluster about what we did. We have to get out there and push our message everyday as well as legislate.

        Politics is an everything all the time pursuit and we have to do it all if we want to govern.
